Virtual Reality Training Solutions for Safety

Health and Safety Training in a Virtual Environment

Virtual Reality offers a new approach to workplace safety training. Through immersive simulations, individuals can experience real-world situations in a controlled environment. This method not only increases health and safety awareness but also provides an opportunity to learn soft skills in a virtual world and practice critical safety procedures without taking actual risks.

What is Virtual Reality training?

Virtual Reality (VR) training is an immersive 3D simulation learning experience that replicates real-life scenarios and environments, giving learners the chance to complete practical training in a risk-free environment where they can learn by doing. Our clients are using our VR training solutions to simulate potentially fatal scenarios without compromising safety.

Our view on Virtual Reality training

Where training is required for high-hazard roles or with hazardous equipment, VR is the only way to develop safe habits through repetitive and immersive learning. Learners can develop and embed safe working habits from remote locations without requiring extensive travel, bridging the gap between traditional classroom training and practical, hands-on experience.

By replicating highly skilled, risky tasks and scenarios using virtual reality, learners can navigate and respond to real situations within a safe, immersive environment, allowing them to make mistakes, repeat tasks and feel confident and prepared to deal with potentially life-threatening incidents. Such training programmes are instrumental in transforming theoretical knowledge into practical skills.

How does it work?

Virtual reality training harnesses the power of immersive technology to create a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment where you can train employees in real-time. Wearing a VR headset, your employees are transported into a lifelike simulation tailored to their learning objectives. Within this virtual space, they can perform tasks, make decisions, and face scenarios that mimic real-world challenges.

3t’s advanced VR solutions track users’ movements, gestures, and decisions, providing immediate feedback and allowing for real-time adjustments. This hands-on approach not only enhances engagement but also facilitates experiential learning, where knowledge is gained through experiences rather than passive consumption.

VR Training bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application, ensuring that learners are not just informed, but also prepared for real-world scenarios. Our training programmes focus on creating a comprehensive learning experience that prioritises safety and skill development, while increasing overall training effectiveness.

Typical Business Needs And Challenges:

Real Consequences Without Real Risks:

In safety-critical sectors, mistakes can have dire consequences. Traditional training methods often fall short in allowing learners to truly grasp the gravity of potential errors. With VR, learners can experience the outcomes of their actions in a controlled environment, understanding the repercussions without facing actual danger.

Engagement Beyond Theoretical Content:

Traditional theoretical learning can be monotonous and may not resonate with all learners. In industries where safety is paramount, it’s crucial that training captures attention and is memorable. A VR training platform offers an interactive and immersive experience, making learning more engaging and effective.

Overcoming Geographical Limitations:

Not all learners can easily access physical training locations, especially in specialised industries. Traveling to these sites can be time-consuming and costly. VR training eliminates this barrier, allowing learners to enter virtual training environments from anywhere.

Access to Specialised Equipment:

Safety-critical industries often require training on specific equipment that is expensive, rare, or both. Procuring and maintaining this equipment for training purposes can strain resources. With VR, learners can familiarise themselves with these tools in a virtual space, reducing costs and ensuring consistent access.

Accelerated Learning and Retention:

In fast-paced industries, there’s a pressing need to onboard and upskill workers quickly. However, rapid training shouldn’t come at the expense of retention. VR training solutions cater to various learning styles, promoting faster skill acquisition and aiding in the retention of crucial knowledge.

Key benefits of our VR Training solutions

Our VR health and safety training enables learners to experience the consequences of potential mistakes in an immersive, protected and risk free environment.

The primary benefit of VR training is that as well as being immersive, it provides a completely safe real-life environment to interact, make mistakes and repeat tasks.

Ensure learners are focused and engaged in their learning in an immersive and realistic environment.

Our VR solutions replicate real-life workplace scenarios, giving learners access to real-life safety-critical working environments.

VR training is proven to develop the skills and behavioural habits required for safety-critical roles.

VR is also proven to improve learning retention by 80%.

Our VR technology brings scenarios to life which are difficult to create in a physical environment, enabling an emotional connection to their learning.

We are experts in replicating real-life immersive and interactive environments that accurately represent real-life workplaces, tasks and scenarios.
